DescriptionThe next line left of Forked Route. Start up, encounter a crux pulling the bulge, then enjoy easier climbing to the original anchor. There were definitely 5.10 moves but I felt the crux was the pump.
1st continuation: Proceed a ways up & right past two more bolts of 10- to a 2nd chain anchor.
2nd continuation: 3 bolts of gritty 5.9 to a final 3-bolt anchor just short of the ceiling. One bolt is 1/4" with infamous dime-thin smc hangar, but the anchor is 3 phat modern bolts.
